republican nominee for president mitt romney was critical of president obama's handling of the law. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is he told people they could keep their insurance and that wasn't the truth. whether you like the model of obama care or not the fact the president sold it under a model is not true the. the only way he can rebuild credibility is work with republicans and democrats and rebuild a foundation. we got to have a president that can lead. right now he's not able to do so. >> as for the website government officials say will go off line temporarily on a daily basis to fix its ongoing issues. >> robert gibbses i want to go back to something that was said before in the "the washington post." it's stunning that you have the biggest start up ever run by somebody that had never run a start up before or had business experience before. i mean, looking back, people are scratching their heads for years how did they make these mistakes. how did mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> i think that's a f

in jeopardy? as mitt romney now says, the entire foundation of the obama presidency is rotting away because of broken promises and fundamental dishonesty. >>> and here's the latest blow to the new law. a new study predicts as many as 129 million americans will be dropped by their current plans and be forced to buy much more expensive plans instead. the author of that study is going to join us live. >>> and we're just a few hours away from election day. two key races in new jersey. a big chris christie win might make him the gop presidential front-runner. and in virginia, can republican ken cuccinelli pull a fast closing upset? those races tomorrow night. all those stories and much more coming up in "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." we're live here at 7:00 p.m. eastern and 4:00 p.m. pacific. we have more headlines breaking today on the failure of obama care. here's the latest. a new study shows up to 129 people could lose their current health plans and face an average premium hike of 41% because of obama care r

, mock debates, he and john kerry playing mitt romney. first session on saturday went okay. sunday night was a horrible experience. the president was like he was in the denver debate, lethargic, professorial, didn't seem like he was fighting for the job. at times peevish, nasty to governor kerry sitting in for mitt romney. they were panicked. that prep ended and you had a scene which we write about in double down, plouffe, axelrod, debate advisers staying up to well past midnight saying what do we do, what do we do? how can we turn this around? we can't do down this path. they did what they called an intervention with the president. four aides and the president alone meeting to try to find how to turn things around. in short in the scene the president said, as you said, i'm not sure i can do this. they did a couple of things, how he needed to change his state of mind about it. they gave him one-liners, debate on a page to try to just come up with anticipating the questions, coming up with one-liners to use in the debate, and the president resolved he was going to do it. they also gave hi

off the ground and began to get a decent amount of national exposure for backing mitt romney for president. >> how much are you looking to raise? and is this going to be part of the ads that i assume your super pac is going to put out? >> the unfortunate part of politics is, our voice is directly in relationship to how much money we have. i'm not taking a paycheck. i'm doing this for god and country. >> but as mother jones points out in a terrific piece of reporting on zinke's scheme to financially support his own campaign, looks like his super pac paid more than $26,000 to a company called continental divide international. and according to zinke's linkedin page, he happens to be ceo of that same company, in other words zinke set up a super pac that happened to cut a $26,000 check to his own company. zinke seems to be taking full advantage of citizens united. prior to the exploits, it was a show on comedy central that exhibited those effects. but the reality has caught up with the satire. and there's nothing funny about it. vo: it's that time of year again. medicare open enro

? jenna: very interesting. peter, thank you. jon: former republican presidential candidate mitt romney is taking aim at some consider president obama's broken campaign promise that americans who like their health insurance can keep it. >> whether you like the model of obamacare or not the fact that the president sold it on basis that was not true, has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. jon: talk about it with bob cusack, the managing editor of "the hill." it is interesting to watch the spin in washington. president obama could not have been more clear, bob, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep him. said that over and over and over again. >> yeah. that's right. i mean, remember a the time the democrats, it was tough getting the votes. so they had to make a lot of promises. this one was clearly broken the way the president said it. 3.5 million people have now lost their plans. obviously some will get new plans but some of them, we've seen anecdotes they liked their plan even though it was not a

in massachusetts, look, let's be frank. this plan that obama has was modelled after romney's plan in in effect for five years. 98.5% in massachusetts have health insurance, far greater than any other state in the country. this program may have flaws. we have not yet discovered what they are. this is speculation, nonsense. i'm tired of it. i think it's time for all americans to pull together -- >> i love -- >> -- do the best we can to make this work for all of us. >> i love the way the democrats invoke mitt romney's name when they're trying to defend the indefensible. the fact is, this plan, this health care plan, passed in both the senate and the house without a single republican vote. >> are you saying it's not working the way dr. dean is saying in massachusetts? >> well, totally different situation. you had a much lower level of uninsured. you have very few people who had to buy into this. i think in massachusetts it was in the low single digits of people who didn't have health insurance. that's not the case. >> okay. >> in the united states as a whole. it's apples and oranges and you should

is the leader of the republican party? is it john boehner right now? mccain, romney? who do you look to as the voice? >> you know, when i was chairman of the party, newt gingrich and bob dole. two very different people with very different ideas. i was the chairman, i certainly wasn't the leader of the republican party. but when you're out of power, there isn't one leader. we're going to have a very large field for president in '16. going to be a lot of capable people. but not one of them today you would say that's the leader of the republican party. tomorrow, i think what you're going to see, christie wins, i think in virginia mccollough in the polls. great lesson for conservatives, here's a libertarian going to take enough -- >> but it's kind of a flawed candidate that should have been much easier for the republican candidate. and if the last guy hadn't gone out with such a, you know, with all the scandal and everything else, it would have been a lot easier for cuccinelli. >> all true, but the democrats can't get a majority in virginia. and by conservatives splitting up, we elect de

built the speech as a romney comparison, clearly a chance for the president to do damage control. >> that's right, anderson. you heard the president talk a bit today about the first month of that rollout of the health care plan, 100 people signed up and trying to make the case this is similar to what is happening with the obama care law. this is about damage control. you heard the president say earlier today he takes responsibility and will make sure it getsed fixed. you heard kathleen sebelius say basically the same thing on capitol hill. i talked to a white house official that said this is by design. pay that pound of flesh and they feel like they can move on. >> some take comparison says the the initial months, it depends how you slice the numbers. the president also addressed if you like it, you can keep it that he made repeatedly. what did he say? >> reporter: that's right. a white house official said this was the first swing. because many said this is a misleading statement. basically, the insurance companies doing this, not obama care which doesn't stack up with reality bu
